Baby names for sale, never used

posted by Jason Kottke   Mar 16, 2010

Before Minna was born, we didn’t know if she was a boy or a girl, so we had a bunch of names picked out for both genders. Since we are so so (SO!) done having kids, I thought I’d share our list in case someone else finds any of them useful.

Girls:
Beatrix
Greta
Coralie

Boys:
Milton
Emory
Milo
Emmett
Max/Maximilian
Hugo
Nico
Oscar
Finn
Sam
Ford

Of the girls names, Minna was my frontrunner from when we first heard it. Meg favored Beatrix for a long time but I finally convinced her of Minna’s intrinsic correctness. Milo was the clear frontrunner had Minna been a boy.
